Black Sun in the sky

I’ve posted lots of shots of total solar eclipses up close. Breathtaking with the disc of the Sun totally blocked by the Moon, the corona of the Sun shining behind the black circle.

But I like this picture from the March 29, 2006 event, snapped form further back with the horizon in view.

The total eclipse in the sky, an edge of orange corona albeit partially blocked by clouds (I hope it’s not cloudy on July 22…). Totally surreal…
